LSMS Surveys EHR Adoption

The Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) is asking Texas physicians to take part in a nationwide survey on physicians' adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). The survey expands on a statewide study the medical society conducted in 2011.

The society received a Physicians Foundation grant to study EHR use among physicians.

The report on the survey will address:

  • Factors that discriminate between nonadopters and adopters;
  • The presence of specific regional drivers (or inhibitors) of EHR adoption; and
  • The patterns of adopters that lead to meaningful use.

Physicians who take the survey are eligible to win an e-reader.
